Nullnorms have been produced from triangular norms and triangular conorms and they have several applications in fuzzy logic. The main purpose of this paper is to study the order induced by nullnorms on bounded lattices. We discuss the relationship between the natural order and the order induced by a nullnorm on bounded lattice.
